Welcome to my site!
I am a professional arts therapist with extensive experience of using the creative arts to work therapeutically with individuals and groups. I hold a Masters of Arts Therapy (with distinction) from Western Sydney University and am a professionally registered member of ANZATA (Australia New Zealand Art Therapy Association).
A Hands on Experience
I have over 20 years of experience working across the arts and in the community sector. I have extensive experience of working with children and young people experiencing mental health difficulties as well as diverse and marginalised groups including the LGBTIQ community. Working therapeutically together in a safe non-judgmental space, we can use art to help you navigate the difficulties you may be experiencing and help bring enjoyment back into your life.
MANY forms of Creativity
My involvement with many different creative modalities including painting, sculpture, textiles, fashion and costume is the foundation of my therapeutic work to guide and support people who are managing difficult periods in their lives. I believe that everyone has a unique inner creativity, and encourage them to explore this to achieve personal growth and make improvements in their lives.
Individual art therapy
Individual art therapy sessions are available allowing for creative self-exploration and counselling in a safe and confidential environment. All art materials are supplied and can take place in Katoomba, or if a suitable space is available at your home, I can travel there.
Groups and workshops

Tailored group workshops can be created to bring people together and enhance relationships within your family, workplace or any other group. Contact me to discuss your needs and I’ll work with you to create a custom made workshop, which is fun, empowering and sensitive to your requirements.
